[laughter] the wonderful thing about this book is that although much of this material has been available, it has not been easily acceptable until now. the original recordings of of varying quality, and it is not always clear who is speaking in meetings. working with our outstanding archivist, historian ed widmer did an extraordinary job. in election season, i find it fascinating to listen to my father talk about what kind of person succeeds in politics. he believed the time for changing, and he was right for the time. it is interesting to apply his standards to the current campaign. he talks about the odds of people with money succeeding in politics and about whether objects come to play. find his standards to today, i know where i come down. i encourage you to make up yo

voters online this campaign than we registered altogether in the last campaign. so the technology has made it easier to organize. in a weird way, the technology has made it easier to individualize hour appeal to voters and the dialogue with voters. i think what was done with this campaign was light years ahead of what we did in the last campaign. whoever is in 2016 will have to reinvent it again because the technology changes so rapidly. twitter was nothing four years ago, and look how important it was in this campaign. one other surprise -- i was surprised at how little the republicans invested in the field in their primary campaign. one thing that really benefited us in 2008 was we had a 50- state primary campaign. from the beginning, we were determined to run a very aggressive and field campaign. we set up operations and all the states -- in all the states. in the battleground states, those organizations sustain themselves. in iowa, that was very important. so i would not, given the nature of the process, at least in those early states, if i were running in 2016 i would not do what
plug two things. one, there is a technological solution that i keep hearing more and more about, which is that we should force gun makers to fingerprint, to have electronic fingerprints on the guns. to attach the guns to individuals if we're going to have them out there at all. i'm not talking about semi-automatics. i'm talking about just straight handguns. and the second issue is, in this world that we live in, you know, i was just at the airport, we spend billions of dollars with the tsa, literally to avoid one shoe bomber? right? we're trying to avoid that one person with mental health issues. so as much as i want to focus on the mental health issues, i think the guns ultimately are it. >> well, you look at, mika, the fact that we have allowed the federal government to be intrusive. every time we get on a plane, we have allowed our 9-year-old children to be stopped and frisked, our grandmothers to be stopped and frisked. you know, all of these people that are our loved ones. every time we go through a tsa screening, we're willing to do that because of the attacks of 9/11, but we're

we steady besides voting and what voters decided. we study technology and how it is changing the way people engaged with campaigns. we study a lot about survey research as a practice going on. i am open to talking about those as well. >> thank you. [applause] >> let me start with a question, michael. you mentioned earlier about the composition of the electorate and what that meant. you made the comment about a new way of thinking. people are now talking about the dwindling white portion of the electorate. i am wondering for what that means in shifts in public opinion on various matters. the fact that we actually have a shrinking white electorate so that minority groups, latinos, and african-americans are playing a larger proportion of the electorate. what does that mean and thinking about public opinion? >> i think it is critical. clearly one of the biggest changes in the overlap of the generational changes. 18-29-year old voters, 42 percent for nine why -- for non- white. this is a generational wave coming in. the way behind it, the folks 0- 18 right now are even more in that direct

education and research and development, investing in clean energy and technology, investing in infrastructure and dealing with the deficits were more -- in a more balanced way. it was about what our obligations are to each other. it was about big things. those are very, very big things. i will say that, for all of the critique about whether our campaign was about big things or not, the preoccupations of people who write about that -- and i used to do that for a living -- i don't try to separate myself -- many of them are my best friends -- there is an awful lot of horse race coverage of this presidential race. there is such a preoccupation with who will win and who will lose and so little real interest in what the implications are. >> we were talking about pulling. >> public polling is so voluminous now. any to kids with an abacus can do a poll of the corner grocery store and some national news are in position will cover it as if it is news. and maybe the billion tommy pulled him out today. -- the billy and tommy poll came out today. it can be done sound yet they produce res
that with any kind of motion picture technology available, it's not a new thing. in fact there was a film that starred grover cleveland in 18 -- whenever that would have been an mckinley inauguration is on film. people have wanted to apply film to the presidency forever but we just reached a point in time in 2008 when technology was enough that one person rather than i would say from the 60's onward about three people could actually do this work. more importantly than that i think it's a personality meeting technology moment. for instance, in the 1960 election and talks about the television election of jfk and how telegenic he was and it's all true but it's not to say that television hadn't than any major important medium and had been used by several presidents before him but he have this unique temperament and a look that really spoke well to television. you have a similar thing with the internet and barack obama and certainly other people have tried to what extent they could have been i think there is a reason why say will.i.am didn't make good music video about howard dean. it wouldn't
